Despite what the text says, the armor of RA2-era Mirage tanks is not so light. I observed and it took less damage from a Rhino's cannon than a Grizzly. It can win against everything except Apocalypse tanks in one-on-one combat. In essence, combining it's high firepower, high armor and camouflage ability, it is roughly equvivalent to an Apocalypse in terms of anti-vehicle combat. Pros and cons of the tank when compared to an Apoc:
- Slightly lower armor - much cheaper
- Worse against structures - WAY better against infantry
- Can't attack air - camouflage ability
In my opinion, it's worth the tradeoff. --18.104.22.168 17:41, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
The article says the Mirage Tank is good against buildings in groups of 3-4.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
They are one of the worst choices for attacking buildings!
This is an extremely peity point to bring up but I believe that that the trivia section is wrong about that the mirage is based of the FV4034 Challenger 2, but is actually based on the FV4030 Challenger 1 (I did say extemely peity).
I believe this as the design is more akin to the CR1 as if you look at the headlights, the position and design more closely resembles a challenger 1 headlight and if you look at the weird metal cover covering the smoke dispensers (and over the commanders hatch), they make no apperance on a CR2 but they are there on a CR1. I would also like to add that RA2 came out relatively shortly after the challenger 2 was in service, so I doubt the designers had time to make their designs around the tank.
